Where is the X source for pre-DR3 mkLinux?

Where is the X source for pre-DR3 mkLinux?

Post by Bob Berett » Sat, 25 Jul 1998 04:00:00

Can anyone direct me to the X11R6.3 xc source tree that was used to
the X distribution in pre-DR3 mkLinux?  The SRPMS directory on the
apple site has (almost) all the other sources for pre-DR3, but the X
source seems to be missing.

Thanks in advance,

1. Problems installing MkLinux pre-DR3


I'm trying to install the current pre-DR3 version of MkLinux on a G3/DT/266
with 128 MB RAM. My disk setup is as follows:

Internal 4GB IDE disk with two partitions:
- 500 MB HFS with MacOS 8.1 system folder
- 3.5 GB HFS+ with MacOS apps

External 2GB SCSI disk with four partitions:
- 100 MB MKLinux root
- 700 MB Mklinux usr
- 128 MB MkLinux swap
- 1 GB MacOS HFS

I downloaded the appropriate files and put everything in
place (mach_servers folder on 500MB startup partition on IDE drive). After having
edited my lilo.conf file to tell the installer where the mach_servers folder
is (rootdev=/dev/hda5), I rebooted the machine and always get the following errors:

partition 4 is ZERO sized (20001)

ERROR: bootstrap task cannot find configuration file

configuration file: /dev/boot_device/mach_servers/bootstrap.conf
I checked the entry in lilo.conf many times, nothing seems to be wrong. The
booter at startup correctly identifies the root device as /dev/hda5. Can the
HFS+ partition on my IDE drive be the source of the problem even if the
mach_servers folder lives on the HFS partition on the same drive?

What else can be wrong?

Any hints appreciated!

Thanks in advance
